Do you have a genuine interest for helping pupils improve their behavioural skills? Currently, GSL Education is seeking a Behaviour Mentor who will be able to work in vibrant secondary schools in Southwark. Behaviour mentors play a vital role in providing a secure and supportive learning environment for pupils.

  • Build trusting relationships with students who struggle with behaviour by providing them with specialized assistance.
  • Act upon useful behaviour control strategies to foster a friendly and educational environment.
  • Collaborate with educators and other staff members to address each child's unique needs. As they strive to develop a positive attitude toward learning, students need your encouragement and assistance.
  • Participate in the development and implementation of behavioural intervention programs.
  • As children get older, use creative and interesting teaching techniques to help them develop positive emotional and behavioural traits.

Requirements as a Behaviour Mentor:

  • A bachelor's degree in education, psychology, social work, counselling, or a related field. Obtaining a master's degree is advised.
  • Having a certification in behaviour analysis or a related field (RCB, BCBA) is beneficial.
  • A thorough understanding of behavioural theories, applied behaviour analysis, and behaviour modification strategies.
  • Exceptional communication and interpersonal skills.
  • The ability to collect, analyse, and interpret behavioural data.
  • Demonstrated capacity to design and implement behaviour intervention initiatives.
  • Tolerance, sensitivity, empathy, and positivity when helping people who have behavioural problems.
  • The ability to function both alone and collaboratively in a group. An enhanced DBS on the update service.

Please be advised that this role requires a strong knowledge and understanding of safeguarding and child protection and that successful applicants must satisfy all background safer recruitment checks including an enhanced DBS on the update service.
